Democrats in the Illinois General Assembly will likely try to pass a tax increase, according to Illinois State Senator Chapin Rose, if they don’t get a stimulus bailout from the federal government.
Senator Rose does expect there to be a veto session because he doesn’t think that his democratic colleagues can help themselves from passing more rules and regulations.
When asked about the vote to make Chicago the 51st state, Senator Rose says that it’s easier said than done.
Senator Rose went on to say that the first 5-10 years after the separation would be difficult, but that after that the amazing resources of downstate Illinois would take over.
